Vanessa Paradis reacted to the controversy over the price of some of her theater tickets, deemed too high.

From this Tuesday, September 14, the famous actress Vanessa Paradis is playing in the play Mom at the Edouard VII theater in Paris, written by her husband Samuel Benchetrit. The French singer plays the role of Jeanne, a saleswoman in a ready-to-wear store for pregnant women, alongside Eric Elmosnino, Félix Moati and Gabor Rassov. However, the star has found himself at the heart of a small controversy in recent days. The reason ? The very high price of some seats.

In an interview with JDD Sunday, September 12, Vanessa Paradis returned to this criticism. “Indeed some are very expensive. They are 98 euros and correspond to the golden square, or only 60 seats out of the 790 of the theater! What they say less is that there are 10 euros! “, she clarified. “After that, it is a private theater, which does not receive any subsidy. It will reopen with our play and perhaps these seats will allow it to survive.”

The singer defended herself from being at the origin of this pricing: “I have nothing to do with it and I find it hateful to be blamed. I have always attached myself to ensuring that the price of my concerts does not is not too high “.
